ECITB International Health & Safety Passport

Our Engineering & Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) accredited International Health & Safety Passport courses ensure that site personnel worldwide have reached a recognised level of health & safety knowledge and awareness to enable them to work safely on site. 

Successful candidates will be issued a photographic passport transferable worldwide. The training courses are specifically designed for the construction and engineering construction industries and are relevant to the following sectors: oil & gas, power, renewable energy, nuclear, chemical, pharmaceutical, food, shipbuilding and all other construction projects including new build and transportation networks.

Course content can be localised to reflect the country or region where the workforce will operate. Individuals must renew their passports every three years to ensure their health & safety knowledge is current.

Foundation course (1 day)


This is a one day ECITB International Health & Safety Passport Foundation course, dealing generically with safe working practices including elementary behavioural safety practice. It is suitable for all members of a workforce. 

Advanced course (2 days)


The ECITB International Health & Safety Passport Advanced course is based on the course that is hugely successful in the UK, with over ½ million workers trained since 1990. The content can be localised to reflect the country or region where the workforce will operate. The training is also designed to support the specific site induction that employees will receive on large industrial complexes. 

Supervisor course (1 day)


This one day course will provide workers who supervise others with the essential knowledge and skills required to apply good health and safety standards and practices within their workforce. The Supervisor Passport will only be issued to people in possession of a valid ECITB International Health & Safety Passport Advanced course. 

Renewal course (1 day)

Part of the success of the ECITB Safety Passport system is the requirement for each passport holder to renew their passport after three years. The ‘Renewal’ course is a one day training course that will update and refresh workers with all the main subjects dealt with in the ECITB International Health & Safety Passports Advanced course.
